I get these robo calls claiming that they're calling from the CRA and they'll seize my assets and bank accounts if I don't call them back. I tried selective call blocking but it tells me that the number I've entered is incorrect.
Hey there watsonm,
Thanks for reaching out! We're sorry to hear that you continue to receive these sorts of calls. It sounds like perhaps these calls are not legitimate, so we'd recommend taking a look at our Scam Phone Calls to Shaw Customers page for some helpful tips. In particular, the CRA recommends reporting these scam calls to the Canada Anti-Fraud Center to help to prevent them in the future.
For blocking these sorts of calls, unfortunately Selective Call Blocking does not work with 1-800 numbers, or if the number is being spoofed, so it's a bit tricky unfortunately. You can also add your telephone number to the Canadian Do Not Call List which will help cut down on the amount of telemarketing calls you receive, if you do receive them regularly.
Let us know if we can help further.
Thanks Braden. I'll report them to Canada Anti Fraud Centre. My number is on the Canadian Do Not Call List, but if they're not legit businesses, it probably doesn't really matter to them.
